    No the weather is too cold to ride? I had a very nice ride in to work this morning, 25 degrees and around 7 tonight it will be in the upper 30's; heat wave.

    Here's how I negate the traffic issue:

    They have beer.

    Hi guys.
    A couple of rides planned this weekend, if anybody interested.

    Saturday - we have "permission" for a quick ride midday. Planning on leaving area of intersection hwy 11 & hwy 14 about noon. Heading up the Greenville watershed past Poinsett Bridge, then crossing hwy 25 at Tuxedo and on to Green River road. Then turning right by the church and up to Pinnacle Mountain on fire / logging roads, then back home mid to late afternoon. Right now I'm on my Husky TE610 with my buddy on his DR400. If anybody would like to join us that would be great - meet somewhere on hwy 11.

    Sunday - my son and I will leave same area of hwy 11 & 14 and head north. Him on his KTM 990 & me on the Husky. He's riding home to Asheville on as many dirt roads as he can find, and I'll be doing a loop back to my place. Probably leave about 10:00 and close to a full day of riding.. We are open to route suggestions, but really want dualsport type of ride. If anybody wants to joins us, please let us know where you'd like to meet.

    Thanks and have a great weekend .
    Bob
